Fix connection to Tiller error while uninstalling

Thong Kuah requested to merge 62713-fix-uninstalling-cluster-apps into master

What does this MR do?

Make sure the configmap (with refreshed cert) is loaded for the uninstall pod.

Both the install-<app> and uninstall-<app> pods loads the values-content-configuration-<app> configmap into the pod (see #volume_specification). This configmap contains the cert necessary to connect to Tiller. The cert though is only valid for 30 minutes.

So this fixes the bug where the configmap (when uninstalling) should be updated as well.

Q: How does the configmap have updated certs?

A: #config_map_resource calls #files which then calls #helm_cert. #helm_cert will issue a new cert valid for the next 30 minutes.

Closes #62713 (closed)
